Not too bad
The thing about *live* drama from this era is that, usually, things went off very well. But in some broadcasts, they'd be some mistakes.
This episode contains some goofs (largely related to the camera work).
But just imagine how difficult it was to do a live play for television, running 52 minutes with the commercials removed.
This is pretty good, very enjoyable, and contains two scenes that may surprise those who expect 1949 TV to be sqeaky clean and happy.
As for the 6 to 8 minutes of commercials, well, I must admit that TV set is the silliest thing I've seen all week.
